Semi-permanent Hair Dye – Is It Worth It?

Coloring my hair at home is something I’ve been doing for years. Let’s face it, I get bored easily. With my hair that is.

I appreciate the fact that I can experiment and switch up my hair color whenever I like, and most importantly, it’s gentle on my pockets.

When selecting a hair dye to complete at home, you can choose from either permanent or semi-permanent hair color. The major factor that goes into this decision is ultimately whether you want to permanently alter your hair strands or temporarily “coat” them with a color?

There are positives and negatives of both sides, but most tend to opt for the semi-permanent route when attempting to color from home. This is largely due to the chance of complete failure and to reduce hair damage.

However, before you make your decision on which route you’ll go, be sure to weigh out all of the pros and cons of semi-permanent hair dye. I’ve shared a few below.

PROS

Semi-permanent hair dye is great for first-time colorers. Those who are wary about permanently altering their hair or just wanting to try a funky color for a short period may appreciate this route.


Experimentation is fun, especially with the seasons changing. If you’ve never colored your hair and are not sure how a certain shade will turn out, you can easily use a semi-permanent hair color to experiment.

Semi-permanent dye essentially adds the color on top of the hair instead of permanently altering down to the cortex of the strand as bleach and blondes do. Therefore, you will experience little to no damage to your hair shaft so the maintenance and upkeep aren’t as strenuous as that of permanently colored hair.

Lastly, preparation is typically a one-step process of just adding to a bowl and applying to your hair. Permanent hair dye kits usually come with a developer and the color which require mixing prior to application. Semi-permanent hair dye comes in a bottle that is conveniently ready to apply.

I like semi permanent color my natural hair color is a browny color and the color shows not vibrantly like the article said when I’m inside you may notice it or you may not but when I’m in the sun it’s very noticeable lol sometimes I’ll do pink and people say “OH MY GOD YOUR HAIR IS PINK!!!” it’s always so funny when that happens my mom likes it when I do red

I really like using Via Semi-permanent hair color in bright red and burgundy. I like the convenience of using the product and that I can do it myself at home.
